Extending the branch
Many of my liberal friends confess to not being able to turn on the news or open a newspaper on account of some new GOP horror or draconian nominee.
Conservatives are gleeful at the prospect of turning around a democratic tide and commandeering at least two and maybe three branches of our government.
Although I count myself as a liberal centrist, many of my friends and readers are quite conservative and some say that they voted for Trump grudgingly or said that their support was more of an anti Hillary vote than an endorsement of the man himself. Others were totally on board.
I would like to ask those of you who did vote for Trump or decided to vote for Gary Johnson to send me a note explaining why you feel optimistic about the President elect's forthcoming term and why? I promise to keep you completely anonymous and not to out you in any way, even if I see you at a cocktail party or casually on the street. My gmail is at bottom left.
Not too optimistic that I will get any takers but if nearly half of you voted for the guy, I would like to know for what reason and also know in what specific ways you think he will improve our nation and world. Why you feel good about a Trump presidency. Would really appreciate the feedback. I will publish but not divulge. Thank you.
